Máximo Caminero, the Miami painter who earlier this year deliberately smashed an expensive urn at Pérez Art Museum Miami, will not be headed to prison.

Miami-Dade prosecutors announced today that Caminero pleaded guilty to criminal mischief for destroying an Ai Weiwei vase at PAMM February 16. Caminero will serve 18 months of probation for the "protest," but the deal allows the 51-year-old to avoid incarceration.

"I find it hard to live with what I did because it still haunts me," Caminero wrote in an apology letter. "I cannot repair the damage caused to so many, but given a second chance I will demonstrate that redemption is still a way to recover one's humanity."

Crack open a Molson, Miami -- our long Canadian nightmare is finally coming to an end.

Tony Bosch once worked at a clinic in this Coral Gables tanning salon registered to Anthony Carbone, who now faces federal charges.
If you thought the Biogenesis scandal couldn't get any more seedy or bizarre, you haven't been paying enough attention to the case that brought down A-Rod and resulted in seven indictments last week, including one against clinic founder Tony Bosch.

Feds have now arrested three other men tied to the scandal, including Gary Jones -- the guy who sold Major League Baseball a batch of stolen Biogenesis records -- on charges that he sold an AK-47 to an undercover agent. Anthony Carbone, the registered agent of one of Tony Bosch's anti-aging operations, has also been booked on drug charges.

Yuri Sucart Faces a Decade in Prison After Years of Doing A-Rod's Dirty Work

Categories: Crime, Sports

via New York City District Attorney's Office
Yuri Sucart's arrest in 1993 set the stage for years of dependance on his famous cousin.
It would be hard to imagine a character less suited to Alex Rodriguez's luxury lifestyle of private jets and South of Fifth condos than the shackled man federal agents led into the DEA's Weston headquarters the morning of August 5.

Yuri Sucart was clad in a baggy white T-shirt, ill-fitting black pants, socks and sandals. He looked more like a paunchy, balding soccer dad than a guy who'd spent decades in A-Rod's tight inner circle. Yet the truth is, no one was closer to the suspended Yankees superstar through his whole career than his older primo.

Miami-Dade police have arrested Yurianne "Elvin" Hervis-Gonzalez, 34, and charged him Tuesday with 30 felony counts of animal cruelty in connection with an illegal West Miami-Dade slaughterhouse where pigs were brutally killed -- some via sledgehammer attacks, some with gunshots and others boiled alive. At the time of his arrest Miami-Dade police also charged Hervis-Gonzalez on a separate case of grand-theft auto.

Hervis-Gonzalez is the third man charged in connection to an undercover investigation by the Animal Recovery Mission. The private group had offered a $10,000 reward for Hervis-Gonzalez's capture, and believe they now have one of the most vicious operators of the slaughterhouse now in custody.
